Did anyone else get blown away by the wind? Toronto is experiencing some weird ass weather lately. Anyone worried that the world will collapse one day? I believe I’ve been watching too many apocalyptic movies…but who doesn’t?
SongCook’s Authentic Korean Restaurant
6-72 Steeles Ave. W. Thornhill, ON L4J1A1
There is something about this restaurant that keeps bringing me back. I can’t say that the food is superior but for the price you pay, everything is considered decent…or consistent?
Everyone is really nice when the place isn’t too busy. In other words, start coming before 7pm and you will be pleasantly surprised. Once the restaurant is hit with lines of customers, you can expect slower service (not that it’s bad) but you will need to get the server’s attention for tea/water refills. The place is conveniently located beside Galleria Supermarket so you can go FML to parking. There are actually lots of parking spots but the ones close to Song Cook’s are usually taken. You can drive or TTC to this place, both works well.
Pork belly with veggies
This costs a total of $15 and is considered an appetizer. Hands down BEST DISH in this restaurant. I order this every time I come. The pork belly needs to be dipped in the yellow/salty sauce then once it’s in your mouth, grab the thicker brown sauce with your chop sticks and put it in your mouth. My instructions are really bad but you will understand soon enough. A MUST TRY!
It deserves: 7.8/10
I was very torn with what to give this place. They have both good and bad aspects. To start, not all their dishes are spectacular but at the same time nothing is horrible. Their service is average yet they never seem to disappoint. I’m impressed with their website and DAMN that pork belly is just too delicious. One major complaint is that they have limited side dishes. If you judge on food quality alone, there are too many other restaurants that shine above. But if you factor in the whole package, it’s quite consistent with service/food/atmosphere. I can totally understand why so many people come here, in fact I’ve been here more than 2 times already.
